    Entomologmötet på Gotland 2017: temaexkursion med fokus på vattenlevande skalbaggar, skinnbaggar och trollsländor i Äskåkersvät.2017In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 139, no 1, p. 39-49Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The yearly Swedish entomology meeting 2017 was organized by the local entomology

    society of Gotland, on the northern part of the Baltic island Gotland near Bunge, 4-6 August.

    One thematic excursion was focused on aquatic insects, especiallly aquatic beetles,

    bugs and dragonflies. A shallow pond, Äskåkersvät, with Characeae in an open grazed

    landscape with high natural values was studied. Äskåkersvät lies just adjacent to the larger

    area around lake Bästeträsk which is the focus of a pilot study evaluating its potential as

    a future national park. The pilot study is undertaken by Gotland County Administrative

    Board, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Region Gotland and the Swedish

    Agency for Marine and Water Management. Here we give an annotated report of the 103

    species found: 69 species of water beetles (out of which 34 were Dytiscidae), 20 species

    of aquatic or semiaquatic bugs (out of which 10 were Corixidae), and 14 species of dragonflies.

    These include Hydrophilus piceus and H. aterrimus redlisted in Sweden (both as

    NT), and Dytiscus latissimus, globally redlisted (VU). We also noted the noble crayfish,

    Astacus astacus (redlisted as CR in Sweden) and the European medicinal leech Hirudo

    medicinalis (redlisted as NT globally). The blue emperor dragonfly (Anax imperator) was

    noted, a species first recorded from Gotland in 2002 and we present a graph on its increase

    and spreading on the island since. The number of species found in spite of a relatively

    modest collecting effort at a suboptimal time when many species may be in pupal stage out

    of water as witnessed by many teneral individuals, indicates a species rich locality with

    high natural value. The stoneworts (Characeae) vegetation certainly contributes to this, for

    instance vouched for by the occurrence of specialists as Haliplus confinis and H. obliquus

    whose larvae feed on stoneworts.

    Arbetet med donationer av insektsamlingar vid Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet2014In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 134, p. 153-162Article in journal (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    We describe the work with donated insect collections at the Swedish Museum of Natural

    History (NRM) in Stockholm, Sweden. The museum receives donations yearly from

    amateur entomologists, and they are an important contribution to the enrichment of the

    collections. For the collector it is satisfying that a public institution takes on the long term

    responsibility of safeguarding the scientific value in a collection, curating and making it

    available for study. Significant donations in the last years include that of Lars Huggert

    (Hymenoptera, Coleoptera), Hans Bartsch (Diptera) and Anders N. Nilsson (aquatic Coleoptera)

    to name a few. The curatorial and digitizing workload at the Entomology collection

    are unfortunately not matched by staff funding, and as at other European museums

    volunteer work constitute vital and invaluable help. We acknowledge especially some of

    the volunteer work in the Coleoptera and Hymenoptera collections. Recently we have engaged

    with amateur entomologists by organizing taxon-specific workshops at the museum

    which has stimulated exchange and collaboration. The Hymenoptera-day was visited by 30

    participants, and the Diptera-meeting by 49. As an example of what happens with a donation

    once it reaches the museum, we describe the work with a recent Coleoptera collection

    donation by Jan Olsson, Vallentuna. A few highlights from the unidentified material,

    including the Archostematan beetle Priacma serrata (Cupedidae) and the false jewelbeetle

    Schizopus laetus (Schizopodidae), are presented as they were new to the NRM collections.

    We also bring attention to two new websites: www.naturarv.se is the webportal presenting

    digitized material in Swedish natural history collections. Both metadata on specimens and

    photos are made searchable here. We also launch a new webpage at www.nrm.se/insektsdonationer

    where we write about new donations to the Entomology collections, with Jan

    Olsson’s Coleoptera collection first out.

    Åkerjordfly, Agrotis exclamationis, identifierad som värdart för svävflugan Villa hottentotta med hjälp av DNA streckkodning (Diptera: Bombyliidae).2015In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 136, no 4, p. 121-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study we identify Agrotis exclamationis (Linnaeus, 1758) as a host species for the bee y Villa hottentotta (Linnaeus, 1758) in Sweden. Host use and speci city for bee y species are generally very poorly known, why the hatching of a bee y of the genus Villa from an unknown Noctuid pupa caught our attention. The parasitized Noctuid pupa was found in a garden in Staffanstorp, Skåne (Sweden), in May 2015 and kept in a jar to hatch. The bee y hatched in June leaving two empty exuviae in the jar. DNA was extracted sepa- rately from both excuviae to identify the y and the host using DNA Barcoding. A 600+ bp long sequence of the gene Cytochrome oxidase subunit 1 was sequenced for both samples and queried against the reference library BOLD (www.boldsystems.org). The Noctuid host pupa was unambiguously identi ed as the common Noctuid species Agrotis exclamationis. The sequence was identical to the most common haplotype over much of Europe. The bee y pupa was identi ed as Villa hottentotta, the most common Villa species in Sweden. This added a new Noctuid species to the list of known hosts for V. hottentotta which also includes several other Noctuid genera as well as a Geometrid moth. Belonging to the sand chamber group of bee ies where the female scatter the eggs on the ground while hovering, the active host-seeking rst instar planidium larvae bene ts from having a wide host range to potentially encounter in the substrate zone.

    Varför var de gamla entomologerna swedenborgare?2017In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 138, no 2, p. 109-130Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the decades surrounding the turn of the century 1800, several of the leading entomolo- gists in Sweden were also involved in Christian sects following the doctrines of Emanuel Swedenborg. This has often been noted by historians, but only occasionally by entomolo- gists, and has never been subjected to closer study.

    This paper sketches the history of Swedenborgian entomology in Sweden, from natural history students in Skara in the 1780s, over the utopian plans connected with the Swedish involvement in the colonial adventure in West Africa, to the Linnaean and Swedenborgian societies in Gotland and Stockholm, the coleopterist stronghold on the plain of Västergöt- land, and eventually to a last survivor in Fåhraeus’s old days.

    The two early key figures both came from Västergötland, Adam Afzelius and Leonard Gyllenhal. In the African adventure, the naturalists inspired by Swedenborg were Afzelius and Anders Sparrman. Gotland became a stronghold where Pehr Hemming Odhner and Gustaf J Billberg tutored Olof I Fåhraeus. In the Swedenborgian circles in Stockholm, Billberg, Carl Johan Schönherr and Carl E Deléen were prominent. Then Gyllenhal and Schönherr were both in Västergötland and Fåhraeus in Göteborg. Short biographies of these persons are given and their interconnections laid out.

    The Linnaean perspective on nature had one of its cornerstone in a religious sense of wonder when facing nature, which is known as physico-theology. In the generation after Linnaeus, some prominent naturalists turned away from wonder and speculation, in paral- lel with ongoing enlightenment campaigns against superstition. Especially in the tradi- tional academic natural history environments in Uppsala and Lund there was a reaction with many people turning to the new ideas of ”romantic biology” or ”Naturphilosophie” in Oken’s sense. Whereas in the non-academy-based, more bourgeois and amateur, natural history circles in Stockholm, in Västergötland and eventually in Göteborg, the maintaining of the sense of wonder in Linnaeanism seems to have fit better with the Swedenborgian movement and Swedenborg’s ideas

    Abstract [en]

    Swedish records of two exotic rhinoceros beetles (Scarabaeidae, Dynastinae) are reported, namely the Mediterranean Temnorhynchus baal Reiche & Saulcy, 1856 from a sawdust pile in Hölö, Södertälje, and the South American Tomarus villosus (Burmeister, 1847) from grapes in a supermarket in Karlskoga. A few other examples are briefly discussed, as are the conditions for successful colonisation of imported scarab beetles.

    Abstract [en]

    A brief history of entomology at the Swedish Museum of Natural History for the period 1915-1923 is presented in chronicle form. The time circumscription has its background in a recent 100th anniversary of the current museum building, for which there was work on an anniversary book, which has not appeared, and this is based on a contribution originally intended for that book. It concerns primarily the Entomology department (which ended as a unit in 2013 when it was part of a fusion into a Zoology department) but also includes the Entomological Society of Stockholm to the extent it has been based at the museum, as well as insect-related work in other museum departments. The chronicle gives plenty of examples of research and researchers, other staff and routines, collection growth and management, collecting expeditions and publications, work environment issues and everyday life at the department.

    Vem var Sveriges första kvinnliga entomolog?2014In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 135, p. 187-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The question of who can be considered Sweden’s first female entomologist is not easy toanswer and depends a lot on criteria; here it leads to a more general survey of women in Swedish entomology. Several persons who are candidates for being considered entomologist pioneers are presented, and the conditions for women to engage in entomology are briefly discussed. Such candidates include the following persons. Queen Lovisa Ulrika, Linnaeus’ benefactor, had an insect collection. The first female member of the Entomological Society in Stockholm was Signe Nordenskjöld in 1892. While Cecilia Andersson seems to be the first independent, active female insect collector in Sweden, in the early 20th century. Ida Trotzig collected Lepidoptera in Japan for the Stockholm museum. At that time, preparator Signe Ramberg and illustrator Therese Ekblom at the Stockholm museum were the first female professional entomologists. Only later, the entomological societies included somewhat larger number of female entomologists, and the first woman to get a PhD in entomology in Sweden was Christine Dahl, who also became the first female entomologist full professor.

    Abstract [sv]

    First records from Sweden of eight sawfly taxa are presented: Arge annulata Konow, 1891

    (Argidae), Allantus cingillipes (Kontuniemi, 1947), Allantus melanarius (Klug, 1818),

    Apethymus cereus (Klug, 1818), Dolerus liogaster schneideri Kiaer, 1898, Fenusella hortulana

    (Klug, 1818), Monophadnus spinolae (Klug, 1816), and Tenthredo mandibularis

    Fabricius, 1804 (Tenthredinidae). The problematic taxonomic status of Arge annulata is

    discussed, and it is recorded for the first time from Germany and Estonia. For Heptamelus

    dahlbomi (Thomson, 1870) (Heptamelidae): a lectotype is designated for Caenoneura

    dahlbomi, H. ussuriensis Malaise, 1931 is placed as its junior synonym, Athyrium distentifolium

    recorded as a new host, and additional distribution data are presented, including the

    first records from Austria. A lectotype is designated for Heptamelus magnocularis Malaise,

    1931, and this species briefly compared with H. dahlbomi.

    Abstract [en]

    The tribe Townesilitini (Braconidae, Euphorinae) includes the genera Townesilitus, Streblocera,

    Marshiella and Prochlithrophorus. In Sweden this tribe is represented by the genera

    Townesilitus and Streblocera. This paper explores the taxonomy of the genus Townesilitus

    in Sweden. One new species is described from Sweden, Townesilitus oelandicus sp.

    nov. and the species T. aemulus (Ruthe, 1856) is recorded for the first time for Sweden. All

    five Swedish species, T. aemulus (Ruthe, 1856), T. bicolor (Wesmael, 1835), T. deceptor

    (Wesmael, 1835), T. fulviceps (Ruthe, 1856) and T. oelandicus, are diagnosed both morphologically and molecularly. A key for the identification of these species is provided and

    a phylogenetic tree is presented as well as information on distribution and phenology for

    all five species occurring in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, the parasitic wasp family Braconidae belongs to the top-three species-richest insect families, together with Ichneumonidae (Hymenoptera) and Staphylinidae (Coleoptera). Currently 1089 species are reported from Sweden. The world species of Braconidae are divided into 31 subfamilies and 172 genera. Several new species has been discovered in Sweden within the subfamily Euphoriane (Stigenberg & Ronquist 2011) and there is material enough to increase the Braconidae records up to at least 1500 species in Sweden. Here I present a new genus to Sweden with a distribution covering Sweden from the North to the South. So far 52 specimens of the species Spathicopis flavocephala have been found in Sweden.

    Snapshot of the Hymenopteran fauna of Stora Karlsö2017In: Entomologisk Tidskrift, ISSN 0013-886X, Vol. 138, p. 71-91Article, book review (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Stora Karlsö is a small island close to Gotland in the Baltic Sea of which the Hymenopteran

    fauna has not been extensively studied before. In August 2014, a team of eight persons

    carried out an inventory of Hymenoptera, mainly the parasitoid wasps and sawflies, on

    the island. Sampling was done with Malaise traps for a period of 22 days, complemented

    with vegetation sweeping, branch shaking and opportunistic handpicking during a five day

    sojourn. As a result, about 200 species of parasitoid wasps and 14 sawflies are reported for

    Stora Karlsö for the first time. Eleven species are reported as new to Sweden: The sawfly

    Athalia cornubiae Benson, 1931, the gasteruptiid Gasteruption opacum (Tournier, 1877),

    the diapriid Spilomicrus rufitarsis (Kieffer, 1911), the eulophid Entedonomphale bulgarica

    Boyadzhiev & Triapitsyn, 2007, the braconids Bracon rozneri Papp, 1998 and Gnamptodon

    decoris (Förster, 1862), and the ichneumonids Bathythrix maculata (Hellén, 1957),

    Heterischnus filiformis (Gravenhorst, 1829), Lissonota picticoxis Schmiedeknecht, 1900,

    Mesochorus tipularius Gravenhorst, 1829, Ophion brevicornis Morley, 1915, and Plectochorus

    iwatensis (Uchida, 1928). Also the gasteruptiid Gasteruption opacum (Tournier,

    1877) is reported new to Sweden based on a record from inventory by NJ in 2013. This

    demonstrates how the knowledge of Swedish biodiversity can be substantially augmented

    by a short and intensive collecting expedition. We strongly recommend that other places in

    the country be subjected to similar efforts.

    Abstract [en]

    Plant bugs (Hemiptera-Heteroptera: Miridae) are terrestrial insects displaying large diversity in both morphology and biology. Here we report four plant bug species new to Sweden, with an overview of known Swedish records and biological and distributional notes. Hence, the Swedish plant bug fauna is now represented by 237 species. Two monophagous bugs are reported: Tupiocoris rhododendri (Dolling, 1772), on cultivated Rhododendron bushes over large parts of southern Sweden and Dichrooscytus gustavi Josifov, 1981, on Juniperus in three localities. The distinctive bug Reuteria marqueti (Puton, 1875) is noted in Gothenburg and Stockholm. All Swedish records of Psallus montanus Josifov, 1973 earlier regarded as P. betuleti are here revised, and P. montanus is shown to have a distribution more centered to the southern parts of Sweden. In addition, we report new provincial records of 26 Swedish plant bug species.
